  5. 8. <ul><li>In Turkey, wherever you look, you'll meet plenty of eyes looking at you. Glass evil eye beads. It is common in the Turkish culture to give a gift of a blue evil eye as it is more widely known. People hang a small evil eye from the rear view mirror of their car, keep several small evil eye beads or evil eye charms on hand to give to guests, hang an evil eye near their door in the home or Office . The people that deal with and have devoted themselves to the eye beads, strive to explain and convey this tradition and symbol to the other people. While exporting the glass evil eye bead and eye figured gift objects to 60 countries all over the world, they want to share the positive power of the blue eye with all mankind. </li></ul>
  6. 11. TURKISH RUG
  7. 12. <ul><li>Rug weaving in Anatolia first began with the arrival of the Turkish tribes from Central Asia, who settled in this region. Therefore, Anatolian rugs form a branch of ethnic Turkish rugs. Some of the oldest examples known are the eighteen surviving pieces woven by the Selcuk Turks in the 13th century. The motifs in these pieces represented in stylized floral and geometrical patterns in several basic colors and these rugs were made by women in Sivas, Kayseri and the capital Konya. </li></ul>
  8. 15. CAPADOCIA
  9. 16. <ul><li>The ancient region of Kapadokia lies in Central Anatolia, between the cities of Nevsehir, Kayseri and Nigde. Combining unique and beautiful natural features with a fascinating cultural and historical past, the traveler finds one of the most fantastic landscapes in the world. Hittites, Byzantines and early Christians established important landmarks here, as did Mother Nature. Wind and weather have eroded soft volcanic rock from the now extinct volcanoes Erciyes, Hasandagi and Golludag into hundreds of strangely shaped pillars, cones and &quot;fairy chimneys&quot;, often very tall, and in every shade from pink through yellow to russet browns. Goreme is the heart of Kapadokia and is an important area for shopping, with its wonderful carpets and kilims, onyx souvenirs, and very fine local wines. It is also a wonderful region for trekking and for photo-safaris. </li></ul>
